A delicate singer-songwriter with the soul of a rocker and a gentle rocker in a role of a singer-songwriter. A romantic, poet and melancholic in one package with songs about searching for what we’re all looking for. David Pomahač has started a solo career with his first solo album “Do tmy je daleko” (Indies Scope label, January 2020) followed by the live recording of this album release party which happened just the day before the first corona virus lockdown in the Czechia started – “Live 11/3/2020”.
David Pomahač founded the project Bez peří, spent nine years in legendary Czech group Houpací koně, and enjoyed the party of the supporting band for Xavier Baumaxa. The year 2010 gave rise to the urban folk duo Kieslowski. The intimate testimonies based on the sound of a guitar, piano, two vocals and David’s lyrics gained a large fan base and full concerts both at home and abroad. Kieslowski released three full albums, several EPs, and got nominated for the Czech music Apollo Award.
“Kieslowksi era is over but the songs remain present at my shows. I like them and they are part of my story. My new album is intense, playful, entertaining, loud, I expect from myself to play the best gigs with it. I keep trying to do things better, perhaps even differently and more intensively than before,” adds David.

James Thornhill, God Is In The TV – Do tmy je daleko (album review)
“Invisible World“ is based at the jazz crossroad where East European, Balkan and Mediterranean influences merge and set off in new directions. The band is led by Czech bassist Tomáš Liška, a prolific musician of many ideas and projects, joined by Turkish violinist Efe Turumtay, Serbian accordionist Nikola Zarić and Moravian drummer Kamil Slezák. Tomáš Liška met all of them in the course of his musical journey around the world, while tirelessly searching for fascinating interactions between instruments and cultures which would enthrall both him and his audiences. The foursome’s join approach is not based on individual exhibitions, but rather on a philosophy where music is a crystalline medium which irradiates a rich palette of emotional hues. These are inspired by strong melodies which are adorned by a subtle and seemingly effortless lacework of improvisation.
Invisible World have been awarded the Audience Award of the Ostrava Music Crossroads 2017 music conference. In 2018 reached nomination for the Czech “Grammy” award Ceny Anděl in category Jazz & Blues. In 2020 released their second album “Hope” which has won the Ceny Anděl award as The Best 2020 Czech Jazz Album. The band have performed at world music & jazz festivals and venues across Europe, Africa, United Kingdom and Japan including WOMEX Gran Canaria 2018.
“A sophisticated blend of New and Old World influences, including Turkish violin, Balkan accordion and a pinch of tango nuevo. The result leaves as much space for listeners as for the musicians. A great opportunity for music adventurers.”
(Petr Dorůžka, world music journalist & explorer)

With their original, hot mix of alternative rock, psychedelic, electronica and country the Nylon Jail were shining supernova of Czech music scene between 2012-2014 and like supernova with explosion disappeared in 2015. Luckily for all of us the core of the band has survived and now is back with new videos which announce a new album in the spring 2018 + beginning of live concert activity.
We are proud Nylon Jail to be a new member of our artist family and open booking for 2018.

Ecouter un documentaire français sur le groupe gitan Terne Čhave sur Radio Tchèque.
TERNE ČHAVE are considered as probably the oldest working and definitely one of the most famous Roma (Gypsy) bands in the Czech Republic. The band is renowned for their distinctive sound blending Central European traditional gypsy music with funk, rock, soul, ska, jazz, blues and other influences. Many years ago these musicians have stood on their own feet and crossed borders of Roma ghetto. Bringing their gadjo friends as musicians among themselves they set out into the big world. Touring Europe from Czech Republic and Slovakia via Poland, Hungary, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Benelux, England to Scotland, wherever they go people are dancing.
Today Terne Čhave are band without ethnic or genre limits but their gypsy roots give them a solid base for musical trips to destinations too distant for many others. The band doesn’t fuss about style too much and you will have no time to think about it too because much of their songs are played with devil’s tempo. But in case you wouldn’t sleep this off we can reveal that this is the real gypsy rock’n’roll or … It’s only Rom’n’Roll!!!
It’s our big pleasure and honout to annouce the Czech band PONK has been selected for WOMEX 2016 official showcase. Ponk will be the first band ever to sing in Czech language at WOMEX.
Ponk’s sound is made by cimbalom, violin and double bass and the songs they play are traditional Moravian murder ballads played with totaly new attitude and arrangements. If you will be at the Womex this year don’t miss their show with brilliant new video screening:
